Commander Identifies Gold Zone at Sabin Property, Ontario

Jan 19, 2021

Commander Resources Ltd. is providing results from a sampling program on the Sabin zinc-copper-silver-gold volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) project (the "Sabin Property") located in northwest Ontario, Canada, some ten kilometres north of the community of Savant Lake. Work was conducted in the fall of 2020 and focused on first pass prospecting of conductor targets identified from a recent VTEM survey completed in late 2018. The project is primarily centred on extensive VMS- style alteration and mineralization however work during this program identified a bulk tonnage-style gold target within the Patterson Lake Stock where sampling returned gold values up to 1.4 g/t from grab samples.


  • Continued follow-up sampling of airborne conductors identified in recent VTEM Plus survey
  • New gold zone sampled at Quarry Showing within the Paterson Lake Stock (high sample 1.4 g/t gold)
  • High gold and zinc values returned from newly sampled Hadley showing. (high sample 4.25 g/t gold, 10.4% zinc)

The Sabin property is in the Sturgeon Lake greenstone belt which is host to significant polymetallic VMS deposits and past-producing mines some 60 km to the south. This work program, completed in fall 2020, was an ongoing follow-up of the recently completed VTEM Plus airborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey which identified a significant number of high priority conductors throughout the property. The Sabin property is underlain by intermediate and minor felsic volcanic units that exhibit widespread alteration comprised of garnet, staurolite, sillimanite and sericite metamorphic mineralogy typical of metamorphosed VMS environments. The Quarry Showing is a new occurrence not previously sampled by Commander and opens the potential for intrusion-hosted orogenic gold mineralization within the large Patterson Lake Stock.
